Celebrate the Elouera Reserve Upgrade
Published on 23 January 2018
Live music as well as a range of fun activities and culinary delights will be on hand at Elouera Reserve on Tuesday 6 February to celebrate the park’s exciting new upgrade.
Local residents and workers are encouraged to attend the celebration between 12pm and 1.30pm which will include live music, food trucks to provide some tasty treats for those in attendance, as well as complimentary neck and shoulder massages.
Located in the busy commercial precinct of Macquarie Park, the Elouera Reserve $1.7 million upgrade is part of the Shrimptons Creek Precinct Activation Project and Childrens Play Implementation Plan and creates a modern park design that also provides an outdoor space for workers, families, students, local residents and shoppers in the area to utilise.
One of the highlights of the park upgrade is the creation of a new state-of-the-art playground, which offers children with fun and exciting play equipment including a flying fox, an illuminated custom art work which features two cubbie houses, two trampolines, two embankment slides and six swings for a range of ages.
A barbeque facility is also now available as well as four picnic settings, new terraced grass areas for recreational activities and a water bottle refill station. In addition, there is a new illuminated footpath connection through the park to improve pedestrian visibility from the residential units through to the train station.
City of Ryde Mayor, Clr Jerome Laxale, said the City of Ryde had been working hard to deliver park upgrades for the community.
“Last year, we completed 11 park upgrades, and this is a great start to the new year as we celebrate another upgrade completion,” the Mayor said.
“As Ryde continues to grow, it is imperative that the Council continues to undertake upgrades like the one that has just been completed at Elouera Reserve so that people of all ages in the Ryde community have access to outdoor living spaces now and well into the future.
“I would encourage everyone to come down to Elouera Reserve on Tuesday February 6 to see the upgrade first-hand and celebrate these fantastic new facilities that are now available for the entire Ryde community to enjoy.”
The Elouera Reserve celebration will take place between 12pm and 1.30pm on Tuesday February 6 at Elouera Reserve, 84 Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park.
